In today's business environment, companies are under intense scrutiny in the media, by investors, and by customers over the way they operate. People prefer to do business with companies and individuals that share their values, and avoid businesses that they feel are unethical, secretive, or corrupt. Organizations and their employees who hold themselves to high ethical standards often reap the rewards of fair and honest business practices, both financially and in terms of public opinion. In this course, you will learn the traits and benefits of ethical conduct, as well as how to identify unethical behavior, and what to do when you have questions.
